Preparing Your Luxury Home to Be Listed

Every season has it’s appeal when selling a luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, but there’s something special about summer. Maybe it’s the warm breeze blowing in off of the shining water, maybe it’s the scent of lush greenery and bright flowers, or maybe it’s just the way everything looks so much more vibrant and alive. Summer is an incredible season at the Lake, which is part of what makes us a popular vacation destination, so naturally, selling your lakefront home in the summer can be an excellent choice.

If you have been considering listing your luxury home at Lake of the Ozarks, the team at Luxury Lake Home would be honored to assist you through this process. Here are a few ways you can prepare your luxury home to be listed and how our associate with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices can be beneficial to you.

Curb Appeal First

When selling a luxury home, you want to make sure that the outside is gleaming. It’s obviously doing to be the first impression that your home makes in person, so you want to make it a good one. Hire someone to come power wash the sidewalks and siding. Make sure that the grass and hedges are all trimmed. Wash the windows and have the front door repainted, replace the welcome mat, add some potted plants on the porch. Keep it looking welcoming, up-kept, and like it’s ready for a summer vacation.

Add a Breathe of Fresh Air

This is especially accurate if you don’t live in your luxury vacation home at Lake of the Ozarks full time. Open up the windows to air out rooms that need it, and do whatever is needed to freshen up the scent. You don’t want to overkill by spraying too many deoderizers, but keeping it simple and natural with some fresh cookies or a light scented candle can do wonders. When buyers walk into your vacation home, they should be greeted with a space that feels lively and rejuvenated.

Give Your Rooms a Purpose

Showing a buyer what can be done with the space can be an important way to speak to your buyers. Think outside the box, and don’t just make every spare room a guest bedroom. Incorporate yoga studios, weight lifting rooms, a home theater, a home office, and more. This is a great way to speak to your buyer and show them exactly what type of lifestyle can be had here at their lake home.

Clean Up & Declutter

You can hire a company to come in and deep clean your home, but more importantly will be removing anything that may be perceived as clutter. You want someone to walk into this home and imagine summer vacations and family getaways without those dreams being interrupted by family photos and mementos. With your luxury home possibly being a vacation home, you may not feel like you have a lot of excess belongings, but you may be surprised when you get down here and see closets stuffed with swim gear, summer clothes that you left down here, and more.
